Louise Oliver has had a special interest in women’s health and menopause for many years and now incorporates her skills as a functional breathing practitioner to raise awareness of how breathing is altered by hormones, how this can lead to symptoms of inefficient breathing and how to improve the connection between our brain, body and breath.
Patrick is joined by GP & Breathing Therapist, Dr Louise Oliver. For over 20 years Dr Oliver has been working with women on contraception & HRT. When working with one patient, she used breathing exercises to put her into an incredibly relaxed state but when she tried that with other patients, it made them feel much worse. This was when she realized how breathing can affect people differently and the missing link was carbon dioxide sensitivity. It was then that she realized there was a whole spectrum of breathing that needed to be considered.
